Cherry-Vanilla Bean Milkshake
From EatingWell: May/June 2010
So thick you’ll need a straw and a long spoon to enjoy this frosty cherry-vanilla milkshake.
- 1 10-ounce bag frozen pitted cherries (about 2 1/4 cups)
- 1 cup reduced-fat “light” vanilla ice cream
- 1 cup nonfat milk
- 1/2 vanilla bean, split lengthwise, or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Place cherries, ice cream and milk in a blender. With the tip of a sharp knife, scrape all the black paste from inside the vanilla bean into the blender (or add vanilla extract); blend until smooth. Stop and stir once or twice if necessary to completely blend.
